"Obamacare' under attack as conservatives eye 2016"In
attacking Obamacare, Republican candidates are attacking themselves.Since Republicans in Congress absolutely REFUSED to be involved in the
creation of the law, everything they see wrong in the ACA is partially their
fault.Republicans in Congress could have helped create the law.
Obama asked them to do exactly that. But these big tough Republicans thought
they could bully this new President into trashing the law.In other
words, Republicans politicians displayed an amazing lack of political savvy, as
well as laziness, and irresponsibility.These Republican legislators
CHEATED Republican voters back home by refusing to legislate, which happens to
be their job. That's why they are called "Legislators."It's not Obama's fault that Republicans have lousy public
servants.I can't understand why anyone would want to vote
According to the latest Gallup poll, 20% fewer Republicans believe Obamacare
will make their lives worse than last month. That's a pretty steep drop.
Perhaps the GOP should demand that Kathleen Sebelius should resign,
or stomp their feet and hold hearings on whether Hawaii should release any
pertinent information about President Obama's birth certificate.Maybe the House GOP leadership should impeach Bill Clinton again.There's got to be something!
@GaryO:"Since Republicans in Congress absolutely REFUSED to be
involved in the creation of the law..."Wrong. The Republicans
attended all bill debates and markups, offering many amendments to the bill.
All were rejected by the Democrats who controlled both houses at the time."In other words, Republicans politicians displayed an amazing lack
of political savvy, as well as laziness, and irresponsibility."Well, that's somewhat true. In order to get reelected you have to be a
Santa Claus. Democrats, and particularly Obama, are good at that.
Here's some eye-opening facts about Obamacare:Page 50/section
152: Provides for health insurance for illegals. Page 58 and 59: The
government will have real-time access to an individual's bank accounts to
withdraw money for those who fail to sign up. Page 65/section 164:
The plan will be government subsidized for all union members, union retirees....
Page 241 and 253: Doctors will all be paid the same regardless of
specialty, and the government will set all doctors' fees. Page
272. section 1145: Cancer hospital will ration care according to the
patient's age. Page 425, line 4-12: Folks on Social Security
will be required to attend an "end-of-life planning" seminar (death
counseling) every five years. ** Page 429, line 13-25: The
government will specify which doctors can write an end-of-life order.
The bill does not apply to members of Congress.
Always a complaint...... but NEVER A SOLUTION. This parade of nothingness is
getting boring on the part of the Republican Party. Get on with doing your
jobs, and that isn't just opposing anything and everything (even if
it's good) that the Obama Administration has put forth.
@Utefan60:"Get on with doing your jobs, and that isn't just
opposing anything and everything (even if it's good) that the Obama
Administration has put forth."Step one is cleaning house...
getting rid of the junk.
No surprise Republicans want to over turn the ACA. Just like they did on Social
Security and Medicare. Add those two to the great historical list of Republican
opposition to: seat belts, regulating the tobacco industry, the EPA, over time
pay, any type of union, the 8 hour work day and the 40 hour work week, OSHA,
women's rights . . . .on and on and on.After all what are we
our brother's keeper?
If Republicans are smart, they'll be all over the Dems who voted for this
train wreck like a pack of dogs on a three legged cat.
@wrz getting rid of the junk? Well the first would be the Tea Party
Obstructionists that have done absolutely nothing for health care, social
security, Medicaid, Elderly Care and so on.Also the Republicans did
nothing to participate in the Health care debate, their amendments and changes
were all politically motivated to derail a decent change in health care without
any citizen concerns.
We teach our children it is bad to be a bully but how do we teach our federal
government its bad to be a bully? Vote out the Obamacare bullies in Nov!
@wrz. The government is not going to subsidize union healthcare. It is the other
way around. Since unions generally give better health benefits their plans will
be taxed to help cover the cost of ACA.Did you get your information
straight from Rush?
Hey wrz - You're list of Obamacare outrages is completely FALSE and
fictional according to Snopes. com.They originate from an email sent
out by a Judge David Kithil back in 2009 . . . And it's just one more
example of lying Right Wingers lying to each other.Look it up.Why do Right Wingers feel compelled to lie so much?I'm
pretty sure I know the answer to that one.It's because reality
rarely matches their claims, and lies are all they have.
wrz - You're "eye-popping facts about Obamacare" are all FAlSE
according to Snopes.com . . . Just more made-up baloney courtesy of Right Wing
America.They stem from an email of falsehoods authored by a Judge
David Kithil back in 2009.Look it up.
Are we that uneducated, that a political party has to tell us if Obamacare is
good or bad? Look around you and do your own thinking.Pathetic!
